Re: training as we get older

I'll preface this with the fact that I have only been doing Aikido for about 4 months so I consider myself still a "Tourist" and by no means any expert. I am a 42 y/o with the back of a 42 y/o. Yet I found swimming laps on my off days really helps with the sore joints. A good hard swim calms my brain, increases endurance, and helps flexibility. I don't think I could have got into Aikido without the last 3 years of lap swimming.
